Frank also made sure that the children were with their mother before he faced Richard. I think this says a lot about Frank as a person. Frank wanted the women and kids to be somewhere safe and not to see a dispute between two men. Little did he know at the time, this would be the end of him. I think that it was very important that the mother was upstairs and safe with her children even if this affect the outcome of the court
Frank seems content and ready to face what is coming up ahead. As the years pass by, though, everyone’s attitudes seem to become more restless and their hopes dim. Mr. Frank tries to remain positive but the reader can tell that towards the end of the story, it gets harder for him to keep everyone’s spirits high. An example of this is when Anne says, “Everyone is low. Even Pim can’t raise their spirits...”(561).
Similar to Mal, Frank remained a lowly House Majority Whip for years. Finally, Frank’s anger boils over, when after years of planning/ endorsements, he is denied the position of Secretary of State. In an act of anger, Frank begins to conspire with a reporter to sabotage as a response to the shoot down of his bid for power. During these planned sabotages, Frank stated he couldn’t care about the impacts on individuals. His one drive (not a character trait) is power2.
Bringing Out the Dead Assignment I am having a hard time deciding on if Frank is a hero or a zero. At certain points in the movie he could be one of the two. I feel that Frank does wants to help people, but is plagued by burnout and hallucinations. He drinks on the job, takes drugs, and even berates a failed suicide patient, which I feel a zero. When he does render care to patients he feels are critical, he does seem to put the needs of the patient ahead of himself even if it’s a drug dealer.
In season six, episode three of the series, each characters uses satirical and comedic devices to address social issues of poverty, society, and parenthood that is shown through verbal irony, dramatic irony and understatement. To begin with, the antagonist, Frank is portrayed a deadbeat, alcoholic dad
Mr. Van Daan is being very cruel. Mr. Frank has provided him with shelter, food, and a place to sleep, but Mr. Van Daan won’t even go make sure he is safe. He’s acting like Mr. Frank has done nothing for him. Instead of rushing out to go make sure Mr. Frank was okay, he yelled at Anne to be quiet so she couldn’t remind him of how ungrateful he was being. Here is an example of when you really wonder if people are good deep down.
Wearing a black suit, black tie, and a white shirt, he enters the hospital room where his potential client and many other patients are unattended. He removes a Polaroid camera—a selling point of the Polaroid system was that pictures developed before your eyes. Perfunctorily, Frank takes a picture of the client and puts the print at the foot of the patient’s bed. He moves, takes another picture of
Frances Perkins came from an unfortunate childhood and had to motivate herself in everything she did. “...Rose quickly from the world of voluntary associations to the rough and tumble world of politics”(Source 4). The author tells us that she had to develop tough skin and serve men and do what she didn’t agree with, but had to do. This shows us that was is a selfless person that was inspired by
As I drove to the airport, my mind wandered to what Frank’s reaction might be, a part of me fearing his ego would drive him to suicide. I prayed that he wouldn’t, and that he would eventually forgive me, because no matter how hard I would try, the imminence of my guild about leaving him at such a fragile point in his life was just that, imminent. But, for the first time, the chance to start a new life, follow my dreams and have my own real identity, seems within my reach, and no matter what, I intend to grab hold for dear
